I'm new to this platform, and starting a slow migration from the Classic version.
One question that I have is with the unique Record ID's.
ln the classic version, there is a system generated unique ID for each record (Record Locator), plus we have the option of using a second field for the purposes of importing files, linking from a child table, and used for calculated formulas.
I don't see this option in the Pro platform. I can only find a single Record ID.
As a User Case, there are times when we need a unique number when importing source data from other systems, but from an End-User perspective, this unique number may not mean anything. In those instances, I've used the secondary field field for Link-To-Parent lookups that display an actual text value.
Does this platform have the ability to have both: A unique identifier at the system level (Record Locator), but also a user created identifier.
